Expanded Mesoporous Silicate Films Grown at the Air-Water Interface by Addition of Hydrocarbons

Ruggles, Jeremy; Gilbert, Elliot Paul; Holt, Stephen; Reynolds, Philip; White, John


We have examined the effect of addition of saturated straight-chain alkanes, Cn (n even and n = 8 8-16), and the aromatics toluene and benzene on the formation of mesoporous silicate films, which form at the air-water interface. The silicate films self-assemble by slowly condensing silicate oligomers attaching to templates formed by the alkyltrimethylammonium surfactants CnTAX (n even and n = 12 - 18, and X = Cl- and Br-) in solution. The collection of X-ray and neutron reflectivity profiles...[Show more]
